Box Office – Prem Ratan Dhan Payo manages 200 crore in 2 weeks

1 hour ago

After achieving the milestone of entering the 200 Crore Club on Wednesday, Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has now edged past Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots [202.5 crore] as well. The film collected 31 crore in its second week, and in the process has now scored 204 crore at the Box Office.

While these are good numbers indeed by a huge margin, the fact remains that when compared to the extended first week (of 8 days), the film has taken a fall of around 80%. However, all credit to the terrific opening which ensured that for Rajshri and Fox, the film turned out to be a profitable venture.

Tamasha has released today at a huge screen count and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is now seeing reduced shows (2-3) in most screens. That said, the film would go past Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year [205 crore] today and while overall lifetime total of 210 crore would be certainly crossed, »

Ranbir’s Nostalgic Solitary Strolls in Shimla

17 hours ago

Ranbir Kapoor loves his work, acting, above all else. That’s no secret. Like most artistes in love with their craft, Ranbir loves to revisit early, definitive moments of his film career. He made the most of the Shimla schedule of Tamasha to relive memories of his very first experience on a film set.

Shimla, the well-preserved holiday capital of the British Raj, has a unique feature. At its heart, this hill town has a winding esplanade that has a unique Gothic church, a bandstand, a Victorian theater & a Tudor stone town hall set on one side. Close to the esplanade is the beautiful Sidhowal lodge.

Having finished a day’s shooting, Ranbir would often walk from the Sidhowal lodge to the Mall to relive his memories of assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Black. Shot during the cold, beautiful winters in Shimla, Ranbir learnt the ropes as an assistant director on this film. »

Twice as nice for Tisca at the box-office!

26 November 2015 10:04 PM, PST

Versatile actress Tisca Chopra has what only a few actors can boast of at the box office – two releases on the same day! Two films starring Tisca – Ghayal Once Again and Love Shuda – are releasing on 15th January next year. And interestingly both the films belong to two different genres altogether. While Sunny Deol’s Ghayal Once Again is a hardcore action drama, Love Shuda is a romantic musical. And while the industry is abuzz about the clash, wonder what Tisca has to say about it and which one will she be rooting for more.

When contacted, the actress however reveals that it’s hard for her to pick one over another, “Yes, it’s rare for actors to have two releases on the same day, and it’s exciting and interesting. But it’s also like waiting for two results,” she laughs. On a serious note she adds, “As an actor, »

Box Office – Tamasha to enjoy a three week long window

26 November 2015 8:14 PM, PST

Tamasha is the solo release of the week and it couldn’t have been better timed. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is seeing the end of its run and hence is not a formidable competition. Spectre hasn’t found the kind of appreciation that would warrant a challenging second weekend. The week ahead arrives Hate Story 3 which has a set audience for itself that is different from those who wish to catch Tamasha. The week after that is open with no notable release. This lends a three week window for the Imtiaz Ali film to make merry.

All of this brings to the all important point around the eventual content. Insider reports state that Tamasha is one of the finer films from Imtiaz Ali and hence there has been no ‘thrusting down your throat’ marketing and promotional push, so that it is the story (and not the pre-release campaign) that speaks for itself. »

Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor’s mutual admiration society for each other, Imtiaz and Tamasha!

25 November 2015 7:01 PM, PST

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players”. That Shakespearean line from his classic comedy As You Like It, is the idea behind and in many ways the essence of Imtiaz Ali’s new film Tamasha. But, even more, the film explores: are we merely players or can we make our own story? In the world of Tamasha, the characters, especially Ranbir Kapoor’s Ved “plays” the character of a businessman within his real life, but on a trip to Corsica, where of course he meets a girl, Deepika’s Tara, he lets the storyteller that lives inside him out. Will Ved be able to break the shackles of ordinary existence, escape the corporate rat-race and become the way Tara sees him – the exuberant storyteller when they meet again and get their happily ever after? We will find out on Friday!

50 Years of Bollywood: an spectacle of colours and shadows

25 November 2015 5:12 AM, PST

Last Sunday, the audience of London had the opportunity to experience 50 Years of Bollywood, with Bollywood star singers Ash King and Jonita Gandhi as its biggest attraction.

The show, conceived by Absolute Bollywood Dance Company, promised to be an all-dancing, all-singing outing, but the final result turned out to be rather irregular.

Halfway between a concert and a musical, the show had a host (Terry Mardi) who introduced the different segments, but the show also adopted the style of a musical, as it follows the story of Krishna and his search for a suitable bride. The plot is extremely clichéd and unnecessary, and it eventually fades to the point where the spectator even forgets about it.

Moving onto the actual performances, 50 Years of Bollywood offers a colourful and enjoyable spectacle, but of an irregular quality. The dance ensemble has visibly worked hard to put together a show in which they »

24 November 2015 5:02 AM, PST

How much Bollywood actresses get paid has remained a mystery ever since Kangana Ranaut came out strongly against the disparity in the paychecks compared to their male counterparts in the industry. While the debate did push their salaries up by some crores, the difference still remains quite apparent. Kangana recently became the highest paid actress in Bollywood when she signed a movie for Rs 11 crores. Her revised remuneration was well justified in her post Queen phase. She won a National Award for the same. But have you thought about the figure Salman Khan, the highest paid actor in Bollywood, commands? It’s more than five times – Rs 60 crores!

According to Ians, superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar were a part of Forbes first global list of actors. The trio ranked among the world’s top ten highest-paid actors, which included Hollywood to Hong Kong and Bollywood. While the »
